College Park, Maryland 20740
A 4 day HYSPLIT workshop will be given June 13 - 16, 2017,
at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, Maryland.
The workshop will be focused on the use of the model on the PC/Mac and its Graphical User Interface (GUI).
- Registration Opens: April 17, 2017 ~1200 UTC - Registration will be handled with an online registration form on this web page.
- Registration Closes: May 1, 2017 - but if registration reaches capacity (as it usually does), it will close early.
Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
The first day of the workshop
will be geared for those who have never installed or used the PC version
of HYSPLIT. Participants will install the current version of PC
HYSPLIT and a set of meteorological data to be used for examples. An
overview of the model GUI, meteorological display programs, and an extensive
hands-on training on how to solve atmospheric dispersion problems
problems will be presented. In the subsequent days, several real world examples
of increasing complexity will be explored.
The workshop will composed of theory, examples, and hands-on approaches, and the class will be made up of
both experienced and new users. A background in meteorology will be helpful for understanding the theory, but is not required.
Space is limited to the first 24 people and pre-registration is required. There is no fee
for the workshop, however participants are responsible for their own travel expenses and arrangements.
This year we will again be offering a "Go To Meeting" session for a limited number of attendees (groups will be
given priority). If you cannot attend in person and would like to be added to the list of remote viewing attendees,
please send an email request to
firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the name of your organization
and approximately how many people will be in attendance.
Computer and HYSPLIT installation
All participants should bring a laptop PC (or a Mac, however the tutorial is based on using a PC), preferably
with a DVD drive and a mouse. We strongly recommend installing HYSPLIT
prior to attending the workshop as you will need Admininstrator privileges on your laptop to install
portions of the software. Failure to have these privledges will preclude you from running
the model examples on your laptop during the workshop. There are no requirements on the type of laptop, however
we will be doing some intensive computations so a rather fast processor is recommended to keep up with the rest of
the class. Instructions for downloading and installing the
version of the model for the workshop will be given to the participants prior to attending the workshop.
For those that cannot attend the workshop in person or will be viewing the GoToMeeting, all the materials that
will be used in the training will be available online and is designed to be self-pacing with all the graphics
and examples needed. The 2016 training materials are available at:
http://ready.arl.noaa.gov/documents/Tutorial/html/index.html. The 2017 materials will be posted shortly.
